End of Season Update

There is still 6,000 acre feet of water left in Cold Springs Reservoir. However, demand has dropped and we are only sending 85 cfs down the A-Line Canal to feed the entire system. There is excess water in the ponds and drains as patrons take less and less water.

Due to current conditions, we estimate that we will start shutting down the system the week of October 15, 2019.
